An unofficial acronym which, using the NATO phonetic alphabet, spells - G.L.F. This translates to 'Go Like Fuck' i.e. to accelerate to maximum speed in pursuit of a criminal, stolen car or other reason to get to a destination as fast as possible.
The term was first brought to the UK's attention in 1998 through a documentary broadcast under the title 'Golf Lima Foxtrot'. The programme asked wether the risk to the public by high-speed police chases could be justified in light of many deaths and accidents that had occurred as a result.
The police publicly denied that the term 'Golf Lima Foxtrot' was ever used, or that officers were in any way encouraged to take unnecessary risks when it came to high speed pursuits despite several police officers admitting privately that they were sometimes put under pressure to drive faster than they felt was safe.
